Cool - I better get started. I've only been to 8 of them (none outside the US, yet...) - soon to be 9 when I hit the Flying Saucer in Texas on training in June.

I've been to:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
9. Monk's Cafe - Philly, PA
45. Selins Grove Brewing - Selinsgrove, PA (My favorite pub... visit at least monthly)
48. Blue Tusk - Syracuse, NY
65. F.X. Matt Tasting Room - Utica, NY (Same trip as Blue Tusk)
71. Brewer's Art - Baltimore, MD
91. Dogfishhead Alehouse - Rehobeth, DE
97. Clark's Ale House - Syracuse, NY (Same trip as Blue Tusk and FX Matt - not a bad trip...)
105. Church Brew - Pittsburgh, PA

Soon to be: 39. Flying Saucer - Addison, TX

And as many others as I can make in my lifetime...

I can vouch for the OR spots. Henry's in particular is great.

EDIT - I didn't notice McSorely's until just now. One light, and one dark!
